Teaching others and watching where that knowledge takes them is highly rewarding. Teaching people who have various special educational needs is equally as satisfying. But they need a different style of teaching. As a SEN teaching assistant, you will have the satisfaction of working closely with students to ensure they are getting the maximum out of their education.

This course is not just for SEN teaching assistants. Everyone will come across people with various special needs such as speech difficulties, autism, dyslexia, or ADHD. Knowing the right ways to communicate and work with them will be beneficial for everyone, whether it is through work, school or leisure.

By studying for the SEN Teaching Assistant Bundle, you can pick and mix up the certificate courses. Some children will show signs of more than one disorder and your classroom or group may include children with various different disorders. By choosing our special SEN Teaching Assistant bundle of courses, not only will you save money, but you’ll also be able to learn about various different special educational needs at the same time.

Among the many things you will learn are:

  • How to recognise the signs of dyslexia
  • Helping people manage and live with learning difficulties
  • Understanding the signs of ADHD
  • Causes and treatments for special educational needs
  • What is the autism spectrum?
  • SEN teaching strategies
  • Child psychology and behavioural issues

Start studying our SEN Teaching Assistant courses now. You’ll soon realise how much children and adults with special needs can benefit from your newfound knowledge.

How are these 5 courses assessed?

There is a short multiple-choice exam at the end of each module for you to take and you’ll know your score immediately.

Course rating


Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
